Tidewater Community College Fall Semester 1998 Enrollment Report.
This report analyzes Tidewater Community College's (Virginia) fall 1998 enrollment and illustrates which enrollment variables contributed to the 5% college-wide growth. It includes an in-depth look, both from a college-wide and campus perspective, at demographics, programs, productivity, and annual projections. Much of the enrollment growth between 1997 and 1998 can be attributed to students exhibiting more traditional characteristics: full-time, 18-21 years of age, and enrolled in an associate degree program which allows transfer to a four-year college or university. Underlying this trend are improved articulation agreements with area four-year colleges and universities, and continuous course updates for existing programs. Price conscious constituents have also played a role in the increasing college transfer program enrollments. The college's workforce training initiatives increased enrollments in general education as well as occupational-specific areas. The outlook for spring semester is a continuation of the trends experienced in the fall with a large increase in occupational/technical enrollment resulting from a workforce-training contract with the Navy. Included in the appendices are charts of: demographic comparisons at all colleges and at the Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach campuses; Tidewater Community College proportion of local high school graduates attending the college in the fall semester; discipline FTES comparisons for fall 1997 versus fall 1998 for all colleges; and PAS summary.
